Probably not, but I guess a common value for coding is "utf-8" which
does not specify the eol convention.  Emacs fills the eol convention
in with some heuristics.  Unfortunately it's a bit boring to implement
the same heuristic in SLIME that does the same in all the different
Emacsen.  So I went the simple route and made a fresh variable which
can only have very few values (e.g. utf-8 is not allowed, only
utf-8-unix) which results is much less code.
